Descendants' Path Discussion

Traieon on Sliver Toolbox

I had considered both. I was not as found of Call to the Kindred because it required being enchanted to a creature and I did not like the possibility of card disadvantage if the creature was removed from play. However, I do very much like Descendants' Path but I have just never been able to fit it in.

Have you considered Descendants' Path or Call to the Kindred?

sylvannos on Ooze Theme deck (advice/suggestions)

1 week ago

I'm not sure what's to be gained from playing nothing but oozes, apart from cards like Cavern of Souls, Descendants' Path, and Door of Destinies that benefit every tribal deck.

Bloodhall Ooze, Experiment One, Scavenging Ooze, and Predator Ooze are all reasonable cards for Modern. Necrotic Ooze is more of something you want to build around as its own deck, not necessarily toss into anything. Acidic Slime is also a good card, but the rest of your deck seems to be more aggro, making 5 CMC a bit high.

So of course, where does that leave you now that sylvannos has shown up and shit all over your idea?

For one, notice how much of a +1/+1 counter theme you have going on between Bloodhall Ooze, Experiment One, Scavenging Ooze, and Predator Ooze. Hardened Scales is absolutely bananas! That right there functions as your Intangible Virtue or Honor of the Pure. All of your oozes will just start doubling in size. Winding Constrictor is similar: it's a low CMC card that dumps a bunch of counters on everything. Nissa, Voice of Zendikar offers even more +1/+1 counters.

Second, you're in Jund colors. Lightning Bolt, Abrupt Decay, Atarka's Command, Terminate, and Fatal Push are all good options here. You're basically a quick, low-cost aggro deck. That also means you can play Dark Confidant to further increase your draw power. Since you curve out at 3 (Predator Ooze and possibly Nissa, Voice of Zendikar), you'll only be taking 1 damage on average each turn. This also opens up the potential for Liliana of the Veil. You're constantly drawing and playing oozes, while forcing your opponent to discard cards.

Copperline Gorge is a good start, but you really don't want to have lands that always come into play tapped. Fetches and shocks are going to be your best options, along with the aforementioned Cavern of Souls. I'd also recommend Blooming Marsh, Blackcleave Cliffs, and Kessig Wolf Run.

Lastly, your sideboard. It should probably be some number of hand disruption spells (Duress, Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek), artifact and enchantment removal (Destructive Revelry, Ancient Grudge), and general Jund sideboard tech (Fulminator Mage, Kolaghan's Command, Kitchen Finks, Maelstrom Pulse, anything that didn't get put in the main). I'm not sure what other cards you'd add that protect your plan of killing people with oozes. Hindervines? Skullcrack? I dunno.

Hi there.. our deck are allot different, i see you use some land tutors so i might suggest you could also add Crop Rotation because you dont have to choose a basic land but any land you want..

there are many different ways to go with a deck like this.

The base tactic always is to get the best sliver out asap en win the game.

But in the case that it doesnt work its best to have backup plan like Patriarch's Bidding or Living Death. so when your slivers end up in the graveyard you can get them back.

you might read in my discription that for axample Patriarch's Bidding + Tunnel Vision is a great way to go.

Winged Sliver is a must have in the mainbord.If you want to play Descendants' Path you should play it in combo with Sensei's Divining Top or Mirri's Guile for example, or you might end up putting cards you need on the bottom.Or you could replace it with Lurking Predators so you ''may'' put them on the bottem.

There are also af few instants an sorcery's i would replace like Muddle the Mixture and Brainstorm add Rhystic Study instead..

I dont know if you are on a budget, but this is a deck you should definitely should continue to build on.. yeah... SLivers are king.You could go more controll or destruction or what have you..

My deck also isn't finnished yet. i want to improve the mana base like with more fetch.I still have allot more suggestions for you but its a matter of taste how you like to play your deck..I'll follow the progress of this deck if you dont mind and if you got some suggestions for me dont be shy:)

Rzepkanut Awesome suggestions! Thanks man those are all great. Gonna check out your decklist and make some changes, I'm pretty sure I own most of them.

tnt_nathan Good call on Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree. After thinking on it I don't think I've ever used the ability. Yeah Concordant Crossroads is on my list of cards to add. I'll throw a Paradox Engine in the place of Descendants' Path since Lurking Predators is just better. I'm trying to find a place for that card, I love the art.

Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree, it is slow for the cost and doesn't end up doing very much for your game plan of casting a large amount of elves and winning. You may also want to add Concordant Crossroads, it gives your creatures haste allowing you to attack with them after going off, it also allows your mana dorks to tap for mana while you're going off. I would suggest cutting Descendants' Path It is slow and has roughly a 30% chance to hit a creature.

Geomonbla on Are Slivers back?!

My sliver deck, and maybe most tribals, really makes use of Descendants' Path
